The Rangers begin a 12-game road stretch with a pair of games in Cleveland. Texas won 2 out of 3 against the Indians during their 12-game home stand. The Indians have lost 6 of their last 8. Pitching has been Cleveland's downfall. The Indians have allowed the most runs in the AL and only one team in the league has a worse starters ERA and only one team has a worse bullpen ERA. Only two teams in the league have a worse OBP than Cleveland.

The Cincinnati Reds have traded CF Bobby Tolan to the Oakland Athletics for SP Blue Moon Odom and 2B Jerry Royster.

The Rangers are in Baltimore for a weekend series against the Orioles. Baltimore has the best record in all of baseball. The Orioles just saw an 8 game winning streak come to an end against Kansas City. Baltimore is 10-2 in the month of June. The Orioles took 2 out of 3 against the Rangers in Texas at the beginning of the month. Baltimore leads the league in batting average, OBP, stolen bases, runs against, starters ERA, bullpen ERA and defensive efficiency. The Orioles are third in the league in runs scored. Only teams, Texas being one of them, have hit fewer home runs than Baltimore.

In last night's rout of the Twins, only one Rangers starter did not get a hit. Jeff Burroughs. His average has fallen all the way to .294. Elliott Maddox is actually hitting .337 but does not have enough AB to qualify. The final game of the series in Minnesota is tonight.

California RP Ray Burris has an ulnar nerve entrapment and is expected to miss 5 months. The rookie was injured in spring training and has yet to throw a regular season pitch.

The Rangers move on to Kansas City for 4 games in 3 days against the Royals. Kansas City just ended a 3-game losing streak. The Royals sit in second place in the AL West, 2 games behind Oakland. The Royals have won all 5 games between the two teams this season. Kansas City leads the league in runs scored, is second in batting average, tied for second in home runs and is third in OBP. However, the Royals are last in defensive efficiency and only two teams in the league have allowed more runs and only two teams in the league have a higher starters ERA.

Atlanta lost SP Frank Tanana for the rest of the season due to a torn flexor tendon in his elbow. He is expected to miss 8-9 months. Tanana was the Braves first round draft pick and was named NL Rookie of the Month for April.

The Minnesota Twins traded LF Cesar Tovar and C Jim Essian to the Atlanta Braves for LF Ralph Garr.

Except for one bad innning, the Rangers have surprisingly out played the Royals in this series. Pete Broberg's performance yesterday brought his ERA on the season to below 5.0. The series in Kansas City ends today with a double header. Jeff Burroughs is still second in voting for AL All Star RF.

Hedlund had a no-hitter through three.

After three: Texas 0 Kansas City 0.

Biittner got a single in the top of the fourth for the Rangers first hit of the game.

Piniella broke the scoreless tie with an RBI single in the bottom of the fifth.

In the top of the sixth, Hedlund walked the first three batters he faced to give the Rangers bases loaded with nobody out. One out later and Howard walked to tie the game. But that is all the Rangers would get. Through six, Hedlund had allowed just 1 hit. But he had walked 8.

After six: Texas 1 Kansas City 1.

Kubiak led off the top of the seventh with a single and Hedlund was pulled and Bruce Dal Canton came in to pitch for the Royals. Joe Lovitto came in to pinch run for Kubiak and he scored the go-ahead run on a Burroughs single but also injured his hand and had to leave the game. It was RBI #50 on the season for Burroughs. The Rangers would go on to load the bases with two out but Howard flew out to left to retire the side.

Piniella tied the game with an RBI single in the bottom of the seventh.

Don Hood took the mound for the Royals in the top of the eighth. Hood ended the top of the eighth by striking out Nelson for his 20th K of the season.

Harrah singled in the top of the ninth to extend his hit streak to 14 games. With runners at first and second and one out, Biittner and Howard struck out back-to-back to retire the side.

In the bottom of the ninth with a runner on first and one out, Bill Gogolewski replaced Hand. The Royals made it runners on the corners with two out and Piniella ended it with an RBI single. Piniella drove in all three runs for the Royals in the game.

Final score: Kansas City 3 Texas 2.

Oliver broke the scoreless tie in the bottom of the fourth with a solo home run.

The Rangers loaded the bases with two out in the top of the fifth. Maddox then tied the game with a walk. Burroughs followed up with a grand slam! 9 Rangers came up to bat in the innning.

After six: Texas 5 Kansas City 1.

Mayberry cut into the lead with a solo home run in the bottom of the seventh.

Stanhouse got the bottom of the eighth started by striking out Schaal for his 20th K of the season.

In the bottom of the ninth, the Royals got a runner on first and one out and Bill Gogolewski replaced Stanhouse on the mound for the Rangers. The Royals had already scored walk off runs off Gogolewski twice this series. But he would get two groundouts to end the game and give the Rangers a double header split and a series split.

Final score: Texas 5 Kansas City 2.

The Rangers had an almost-respectable 5-7 road trip. The three game sweep at the hands of the best team in baseball made it look worse than it really was. They now begin a 12-game home stand with two against the Oakland Athletics. Oakland leads the AL West by 2.5 over Kansas City. The Athletics are getting good run production and pitching. Oakland is second in the league in runs scored, OBP, stolen bases, runs against and starters ERA. The Athletics are third in the league in home runs and defensive efficiency. Oakland has lost 3 of their last 5 but has a 16-6 record in June. The Athletics are 5-1 against the Rangers this season.

Only the 1973 Texas Rangers could have a pitcher give up 4 home runs in one game and leave the game with a lower ERA than he entered it with. That happened to Dick Bosman last night. The Rangers have now won 5 of their last 7 and are two ninth innings away from having a 7-game winning streak. This against the top three teams in the AL West. They end their 2-game series tonight against the Athletics.
